I got to swap brand photos with my good friend Jontell Vanessa Photography at Ironclad Coffee & Contrast Studio in Richmond in February! Jontell is one of my business besties and there’s not a day that goes by that we don’t chat over Voxer about all things business and life!
She has also been my inspiration for getting into brand photography! I’ve had the privilege of watching her pivot into brand photography since 2019 before it became more popular! It’s been incredible to watch her grow it over the last 2-3 years and to see how creative she gets as she works with such a wide variety of creative entrepreneurs.
I know that I always have her as a friend and trusted voice to ask questions, bounce ideas off of, and share my fears with. She always pushes me to dream bigger, pursue branding myself and reach for more – even when it feels scary!
We swapped some branding images at Contrast Studio and today I wanted to share some of the updated images she captured for me! We were able to capture some more evergreen images of me as a brand photographer, podcaster and speaker that I’ll be able to use as I continue growing that part of my business.
I didn’t have images of me behind the scenes of recording my podcast & youtube content which has now become a regular part of my weekly marketing strategy! I also wanted to have a handful of images that showcased me in a speaking element since I’ve had the opportunity to dive into that a little more over the past year & intend to do more of it this year as well!
I’m so happy with how these turned out and it was a huge creative challenge capturing SO many images in such little time!
